The letter is addressed to me. No stamp, swirly handwriting in black ink. I pull out a piece of paper, stiffening when I read the message. Hands trembling, the note slides to the floor: Your husband is having an affair.
Six words written in neat block letters. Six words slipped through her letterbox, destroying her marriage, exposing Ella’s perfect life as perfect lies.
But Ella has a plan: Alice is the answer to her problems. A lodger, to help keep her afloat, a friend, to keep the loneliness at bay.
Only Alice has her own reasons for wanting to live at 46 Heath Street…
If you loved The Wife Between Us, The Girl on The Train and The Secret Mother, you will be totally hooked by this twisty and gripping read about family secrets, marriage betrayal and the dark side of love.
This book is seriously addictive! I was gripped right from the very first page.
The plot is clever, with twists and turns, and little glimpses of secrets revealed over time. I really liked the way we got extracts from Nancy’s diary, which helped to reveal what went on in the past.
Slow, enticing and gripping, the story builds and builds, to keep you engrossed right up until the last page. Highly recommended for anyone who likes a good psychological thriller. Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the copy of the book
